MGM Grand is a monster-sized, 5,000-room hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. It is famous for its huge green towers and its live lion exhibit. Lions are rotated three times a day from a reserve outside of the city. Kids will love walking beneath the glass enclosure and looking up to find themselves only a couple feet from the lions. Baby cubs are also available for photo shoots. Grand Tower rooms, suites and skylofts at the hotel feature comfortably plush beds, sitting areas and marble bathrooms. The West Wing presents more sophisticated, chic rooms with DVD players, abstract artworks and classy mirrors. Skylofts are on the top two floors of the towers, offering uncompromised views of the Strip. In-room dining is available at all hours of the day or night. About 20 restaurants, cafes and bars are at the MGM Grand. Studio Cafe is the only place to go for breakfast, serving some amazing pancakes with diced bacon in the batter. Other top restaurants and lounges are the famous Emeril’s, Rainforest Cafe and Diego’s with evening music. There’s no need to leave the MGM, as all your needs can be met within the resort. Families can shop, take the CSI experience or see a Cirque du Soleil show. Famous names often grace the hotel, like singer Andrea Bocelli and magician David Copperfield. The Grand Pool Complex houses five pools with three whirlpools, bungalows and cabanas. A meandering river allows guests to float under bridges and pass waterfalls while enjoying the island oasis.
